Two Tiffin residents were arrested Friday for trafficking drugs and child endangerment at the Willow Creek Apartments in Tiffin.
According to a press release from the Seneca County Drug Task Force–METRICH Enforcement Unit, Tiffin police officers and Seneca County Sheriff deputies executed a search warrant at 575 E. Ohio 18, Apt. G9.
Brady Cornett, 23, and Chelsa Chaney, 22, were arrested for trafficking heroin and child endangerment after officers found children inside the apartment at the time of the execution. According to the release, Seneca County Jobs & Family Services were called to assist at the scene with the removal of the children.
Additional charges of trafficking heroin, possession of heroin, possession of criminal tools, and permitting drug abuse are pending.
The warrant, signed by Judge Jay Meyer of the Seneca County Common Pleas/Probate Court, unveiled suspected heroin, hypodermic needles, drug paraphernalia, prescription pills, criminal tools and evidence of drug trafficking, according to the release.
“We were receiving a lot of complaints from residents of the apartment complex reporting suspected drug activity for some time,” said Seneca County Sheriff Bill Eckelberry in the release. “With the Task Force resources, we were able to confirm and address one of the issues. Our office is going to continue our efforts at the complex to rid the drug dealers and improve the quality of life in that apartment complex.”
Chuck Boyer, METRICH unit coordinator, said he encourages citizens to continue to report suspicious activity to their local agencies or the Seneca County Drug Task Force–METRICH Enforcement Unit Crime Hotline at 1-877-446-Drug (Local #443-0463).
